Enjoyable breakfast

The atmosphere in the restaurant is classy as it can get, great service, smart and delicious breakfast menu. My smoked salmon was fresh and flavorful, hollandaise sauce on my husband's eggs Benedict was done to perfection. Highly recommend this place for relaxing morning breakfast.

Such, old Florida! The dining room is simply beautiful. Our children loved the cuisine, and so did we. Great selection of wine. Nice to see Diane again this year.

The dining room was lovely, however the food was only OK. Had to send back two dishes, both cold, congealed hollandase and raw duck. Third dish was overcooked pompano, dry - needed a sauce. No apologies for obvsiously not up to par dishes. At a place of this calibre you don't expect to dish your own "pate to go", waiter... More

Breakfast at the Inn's dining room is a must. The food is excellent and service incredible. The dining room itself is beautifully decorated and has wonderful views of the golf course. We sat in oversized chairs at a window table and forgot all the cares in the world.

We love this place and always go when we are at our Florida home. We had my sister with us and we each got a different starter; hubby got the soup, sister got Liver Pate, and I got the shrimp- all were delicious. Next, for salads and we each got a different salad, hubby got the Caesar and it is... More

Oh yes, and some very comfortable oversized comfy cushioned wicker chairs. Service was very polite and attentive and food was creative and well prepared. We look forward to returning.

I have been to The pink Elephant on many occasions whilst staying at my home in Port Charlotte and will always continue to return. The food is amazing and the Chef very accommodating. My Father requested if he could have his favorite starter made into his main which posed no problem whatsoever. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and very reasonable price... More

This is a step back into the "Old World." Very gracious, great service, food, environment. My wife and I went there with another couple and just completely enjoyed a wonderful lunch together.

My wife and I stayed at the Gasparilla in following our wedding earlier in the evening. We originally chose the Pink Elephant but the manager, Tiffany, was unable to honor our reservations. We were disappointed until we met Diane, the manager at the Gasparilla Inn Main Dining Room. She and here staff took pity on our plight and proceeded to... More

I was thrilled to see that the black grouper was on the menu. Their menu changes often so, I was thrilled to see it again. Both times it was the best seafood dish I have ever had, cooked perfectly, just fantastic. My husband got a beef dish and it did not disappoint. This is a place to dress up and... More
